UFC Champion Fighter Says Podcaster Joe Rogan is His ‘Ni**a’, Defends Him From Attacks
UFC champion Israel Adesanya has said that embattled podcaster Joe Rogan is his “ni**a” and defended him from attacks from media hacks and other establishment toadies.
Adesanya interjected after UFC promoter Dana White was asked during a recent press conference about recent controversies involving Rogan, who is a long-time announcer for the organization. He told the media: “I’m Black, I can take this one.”
“I’ve been in this fight game since 2008,” Adesanya said, “and Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf***ers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Understand that.”
“You know what they’re trying to do. You can’t control the man and he’s got the biggest platform in the world right now. So, that’s my n***a, Joe Rogan,” he added before giving some advice to Rogan.
“F*** the noise… Just keep doing you, Joe,” he said. “Have some mushrooms. Just keep doing you.”
Big League Politics has reported on Rogan becoming public enemy #1 to the political establishment for hosting dissidents on his podcast who are being unpersoned by the Orwellian technocracy:
“U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said during an MSNBC appearance on Tuesday that he believes Big Tech should censor independent podcaster Joe Rogan.
Murthy made the comments to MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski after she pressed the bureaucrat on alleged disinformation that is spread to an audience of millions on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which is hosted on Spotify.
“What do you think are the best ways to push back on misinformation about COVID that continues to be aggressively pushed, whether it be Joe Rogan’s podcast or all over Facebook?” Brzezinski asked Murthy.
“We can have the best science available, we can have the best public health expertise available. It won’t help people if they don’t have access to accurate information,” he responded.
“People have the right to make their own decisions, but they also have the right to have accurate information to make that decision with,” Murthy added.
Murthy said that tech overlords have an “important role to play” in censoring all content deemed wrongthink by the government because open platforms where people share their opinions freely are the “predominant places where we’re seeing misinformation spread.”
“This is not just about what the government can do,” he said, “this is about companies and individuals recognizing that the only way we get past misinformation is if we are careful about what we say and use the power that we have to limit the spread of misinformation.”‘
Adesayna is set to defend his UFC Middleweight title at UFC 271 set to take place tonight.
